Do you sell fireworks? From 1 December 2020, you are not allowed to sell certain types of fireworks to the public anymore. If you have any leftover stocks of such fireworks in store, you should remove or destroy them or sell them on. You can apply for the Temporary subsidy firework stocks (Tijdelijke subsidie restantvoorraden vuurwerk, TSRV) to finance removal.
Fireworks that have been banned are:
- (Strings of) firecrackers
When do you qualify?
If you are a retailer selling fireworks to the public and you are registered with the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce (KvK), the following demands apply:
- You have your leftover firework stocks removed by a qualified company before 1 December 2020
- You have had your leftover firework stocks stored in your own storage since 1 February 2020
If you are a manufacturer, importer, distributor or permitholder and are based in the Netherlands:
- You need to pick up leftover stocks from at least 50 different locations before 1 December 2020
You can only qualify once for each category of the subsidy. If you are both a retailer and a manufacturer, you need to make two separate applications.
How to apply?
You could apply for the Temporary subsidy firework stocks through the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO, in Dutch). It was possible to do so from 1 October until 30 October 12:00.
